Daniel and Abbie B. Eldridge House

In 1867 and 1869 Daniel Eldrige and his wife Abbie of Brooklyn purchased six lots from Charles and Libya Paulson in what was then the town of Clarencevill and is now Richmond Hill, Queens. The parcel on Greenwood Avenue (now 111th Street) was the main thoroughfare of the village. The Italianate-Style house was completed in 1870. Daniel Eldrige was a clerk in the city Water Department and alleged member of the Tweed Ring (aka Boss William Marcy Tweed).
